@akbogert: That's a problem I have with language, the fact that male terms are often used for all people, as if men are the main kind of people and women are some kind of minority or variant species. Like your french example, or humans being called 'man' to casual things like saying 'hi guys' to a mixed group being generally accepted.

I actually don't like the name 'X-Men' because of my issues with language, but seeing as that's what the team is called, I don't see why the name should be changed because of who's in the team.

When Wood was last writing X-men (vol.3), the team consisted of three women, one girl, and one man. Should Storm change the name of her team just because Colossus left? I think that's absurd.

Storm is the leader of the X-men, all of these characters are X-men; why make it any more complicated than that?

^ fair point.

Similar to what I was saying, but in reverse: wouldn't want to change the name if a man were added, so why change it when a man's removed?

Yet another X-Men book? Again using characters in multiple books.

The X Men is in some ways vast enough to have their own universe (which many people debate if they should). Their history is just so rich, so I can somewhat understand.

What you are talking about is more along the lines of the mutant universe then the X-Men. Take X-Factor for an example. It's a mutant book but it's not another X-Men book. ya ya I know the sales are not that great but for me I'd rather have that then yet another X-Men book. For something so rich they keep digging into the shallow end of the pool.

Shallow? This is probably the most unique and different x-men book available right now...

There is nothing unique about this book other then the insignificant fact it's an all female caste.

It's what all women should be doing. Looking after the baby and cleaning the house. It's in the Bible.

So, what? Women just shouldn't be superheroes?

and here we go with the inevitable ugliness from posters, just because they can. All pettiness and possible ugliness aside, the reason i'm dissapointed with this book is that I love most of these characters and it shows female power, but only in a vacuum. If you are trying to show the depth of any kind of human, whether it be by gender, race, age, or whatever category, and you exclude the other categories are you really learning or exemplifying that trait that you wanted to identify. Rachael and Betsy are two of my favorite x-men period. It has nothing to do with sex.This comes off extremely gimmicky. I wouldn't want an all men x-men, or an all elderly x-men. (Or would I?)

Maybe there is a good reason for the all women team, I can't think of one, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.So we shall see.

Jubilee as a vampire has actually been a surprisingly fun read. I have enjoyed most of what has come out with her.

Oh, the art looks fantastic. No denying it.

#122 Posted by God_Spawn (37585 posts) - - Show Bio

How old is Jubilee? And seriously "an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the Earth’s survival…or its destruction!" Again?!?!? SERIOUSLY??!!

So, the first time we have an all female X title and it's not them doing powerful superhero stuff, it's about them looking after a baby... What am I supposed to interpret here??

Jubes is 18. She was mentioned to being 17 in Wolverine and Jubilee or X-Men during the Curse of the Mutants arc issues 1-6 somewhere in there, (can't remember which series or issue) had a birthday in issue 11 of X-Men volume 3 so it was her 18th.

If Storm and Kitty weren't in this book I would probably look more forward to it.

#124 Edited by nappystr8 (1084 posts) - - Show Bio

Coipel's art looks really different here than it usually does. More exaggerated and experimental. I'm not sure yet whether this change annoys or excites me.

#125 Posted by hyenascar (192 posts) - - Show Bio

@illyanarasputin:

1. you named yourself after my absolute favorite character.

2. Storm and Kitty annoy me too. Although Storm once in a while has her moments.

3. I don't have a three but two doesn't seem as important.

#126 Edited by tximinoman (223 posts) - - Show Bio

I would definetly read this, those are some of my favourite female characters (I love Kitty and Ororo and Betsy was one of the best things in Uncanny X-Force. Also, if Rogue's well written she can be awesome), Coipel is awesome and the idea of an all female group sounds fresh and cool.

#128 Posted by Hanson724 (558 posts) - - Show Bio

Diggin' Storms mohawk. Love the art and can't wait to pick this up. My guess is this won't stay all female for very long so there's no reason to trip on the name. It may seem weird to call it the X-Men if there's only one dude and five women but it is no big deal. Don't worry the world will still turn.

@umbrafeline: During Kyle/Yost's X-Force...right before or during Second Coming (edit: it was in Necrosha). It was with Hrimhari, who sacrificed his life to save her and the child (albeit in a roundabout way).

This new revamped X-Men book looks amazing -- with incredible X-Men characters in it.

Enough already about it being all women -- each character being showcased in this are veteran X-Men in their own right.

There are no X-Men and X-Women. There are only X-Men. Get over it.

@g_money_christmas: When did she lose the ability to fly in the first place?

Former abilities:

She formerly had permanently stored Ms. Marvel's power template, which used to give her flight, superhuman strength, endurance, reflexes, durability, and a seventh sense that allowed her to react instinctively to danger, to anticipate her opponents moves, and target in on specified objects.- From the ComicVine Rogue Wiki

I have never seen her fly in any of the recent comics I've read with her in them. Granted, I haven't been into comics for a super long time, but I've read a few different stories with her and I've never seen her once leave the ground without help.

I do mind artwork and story but never did like the mohawk look on Storm, that was fine when she lost her powers and challenged Cyclops to leadership of the X-Men way back twenty years ago. She does not have to wear it to be tough and confident. Beautiful hair try styling of present times or leave it alone. The look is like they never had aged, still stuck in late 80s and early 90s with costumes; though I do like Storm. 2013 grow them up, none are teens anymore do not be afraid of change.
